In 1857 Smith & Wesson revolutionized the American firearms industry with its diminutive Model 1 revolver. A tiny gun by any measure, it was the Model 1’s ease of loading and use that made it an overnight success, with over 250,000 of the little guns being sold during its 25 year production run.
This richly illustrated 57 page book examines fifteen variants of the Model 1. It includes photos of serial number 5—the earliest known Smith & Wesson revolver in existence—and many other guns that will walk the reader through 25 years of this gun’s development and production.
